Chargers could have interest in LeSean McCoy

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

This morning, the Buffalo Bills announced that they were parting ways with running back LeSean McCoy. The Chargers coaching staff, specifically head coach Anthony Lynn, have history with the veteran runner. That combined with the ongoing holdout of Chargers running back Melvin Gordon raised the question of whether or not Los Angeles might have interest in McCoy’s services. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported via Twitter:

Throughout his career, McCoy has been one of the best running backs in the league, so the name probably gets some people excited. Those people should probably go back and look at McCoy’s 2018 season, however.

It is hard to see where McCoy would fit on the Chargers even if the coaching staff was partial to him. Would he really want to come be the RB3 behind Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson? It doesn’t really add up for either side of that potential deal. The possibility apparently exists, though, so we will just have to wait and see.
